On Sunday, March 11th, we’ll finally get to spring forward an hour after trudging through the dark winter doldrums. To celebrate Daylight Savings Time, you might want to throw a party during that extra hour of daylight. Perhaps you’ll plan a spring-themed dinner on Monday night. Or, you might just want to share humorous quotes about Daylight Savings Day on Instagram. If you’re leaning towards the latter, we’ve got you covered.

As wonderful as it is to absorb extra sunlight on the first Monday after springing ahead an hour, we must admit it’s hard to wake up that morning. Having that one hour taken away from our sleep schedule is honestly hellish — especially if you’re not a morning (or Monday) person to begin with.

Most of the below quotes perfectly express our exasperation about losing that precious one hour of sleep. We know not so deep down that the extra daylight is worth it. But the yawns and grogginess are just too real.

Whether we like it or not, Daylight Savings Time is upon us. So remember to set your clocks ahead and get that funny Instagram post ready. Head to bed an hour earlier, spring forward, and welcome in that much-needed Vitamin D.

1For those of us who often have a bad case of the Mondays:

2“Mostly dead.”

3This is a friendly reminder to chill the white ahead of time.

4Aw, too bad.

5Wait — we can change the time on that thing?

6Let the battle with the little ones commence!

7I’ve come to bask in you again.


9Keep up the good fight.

10Listen, boss…

11*Raises both hands and also a leg*


13The closest to time travel we will ever get.

14There won’t be a whole lot of springing happening come Monday.

15We can actually fill you in on the reason for Daylight Savings right here. (But true, why are we still doing this?)

16We just want to be prepared.

17“Wait, what the heck is going on here?” — everyones’ pets.

We hope you have the least groggy morning possible come Monday. Sweet dreams and happy Daylight Savings.
